Two ways that I can think of:

- find or build a package designed for woody (check http://www.backports.org/
  and http://www.apt-get.org/)
- set up sources.list with stable, testing and unstable sources.  Set up apt
  to prefer the stable distribution but selectively install what you want from
  testing or unstable (apt-get -t testing install mysql-server)

I prefer the first solution if it's available (and it is for mysql-server).
